ETSU student in gorilla mask charged after disrupting Black Lives Matter protest

JOHNSON CITY, TENN. - A student at East Tennessee State University has been charged after disrupting a Black Lives Matter event on campus by wearing a gorilla mask, carrying around a rope and trying to hand out bananas.

According to WCYB, Tristan Rettke, a freshman at the school, is charged with one count of civil rights intimidation in connection with the incident Wednesday afternoon.

Student Suspended, Visited by Cops, Forced Psych Eval — For Pro 2nd Amendment School Project

The incident began Monday after Harvey, as many students sometimes do, left his USB drive in the computer lab. Another student opened Harvey’s 11th-grade project and reported him to school officials.

At 7pm Monday evening, Harvey’s family said they were paid a visit by local law enforcement, who investigated Harvey’s claims the project was from last school year, and cleared him of any criminal mischief.

But that apparently wasn’t enough to satisfy the Manville School District who suspended and then promptly ordered Harvey to undergo a 5-hour psychological evaluation stemming from the months later discovery of his anti-gun control project.

It seems the teacher, who assigned the work, can no longer recall having done so. But the 12th grader disagrees and so does his family.

Harvey said his teacher approved his topic (against gun control), he completed the project, and received an “A” for his efforts.

School Police Have Used Electroshock Weapons On At Least 4 Kids Since August

The video starts with a fight between two high school girls. It ends with both of them on the ground, screaming, after having thousands of volts of electricity shot into their bodies. The entire incident lasts less than one minute.

The two girls are part of a group of at least four students that school-based police officers have used Tasers on since the start of the 2016-2017 school year, according to media reports The Huffington Post has tracked. Nationwide, school police have used Tasers on students in at least 84 other incidents since 2011, according to an August HuffPost investigation.

Education Department Terminates Agency That Allowed Predatory For-Profit Colleges To Thrive

The Education Department announced last week that it is stripping the powers of one of the nation’s largest accreditors of for-profit schools.

The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, or ACICS, has been under scrutiny for continuing to accredit colleges whose students had strikingly poor outcomes.

Building a simple crystal radio.

A crystal radio is the distilled essence of a radio. It has very few parts, it needs no batteries or other power source, and it can be built in a short time out of things you can find around the house.

The reason a crystal radio does not need any batteries is the amazing capabilities of the human ear. The ear is extremely sensitive to very faint sounds. The crystal radio uses only the energy of the radio waves sent by radio transmitters.

Diamond review: Loans 'should replace' tuition fees grant

A grant covering Welsh students' tuition fees should be replaced with support for living costs instead, a review of university finance has said.

All students would receive £1,000 a year before a means tested grant, according to an expert panel led by Prof Sir Ian Diamond.

A student from a family on average income could receive £7,000 a year.

But the current £5,100 grant towards tuition fees would be replaced by loans.

The Case Against Veganism — Carefully Researched Book Spills the Beans

Story at-a-glance -
There doesn’t appear to be a single population of any significant size in the history of the world who survived on an exclusively plant-based diet, so from a health perspective, there’s little support for the strict veganism idealized today
Veganism involves the complete exclusion of ALL types of animal products — not just meat and animal organs, but also products obtained from live animals, such as dairy and eggs. It also excludes seafood
A vegetarian diet that includes some animal foods in the form of eggs, dairy and fish, makes for a healthy balanced diet that supplies all the critical nutrients your body needs for optimal health

INTRODUCING THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL-ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COMPLEX

Even in the deadliest years, the chance of a student or adult being killed at school is roughly one in a million. By contrast, roughly five out of every 100,000 American residents are murdered each year. Extrapolating from this, schools are somewhere in the region of 50 times safer than society overall.
Now here's the most tragic part....

And yet you’d never know that from the level of fear that exists around schools—or from the vast amount of money we spend attempting to make them more secure. The research company IHS Technology recently estimated that schools and universities spent about $768 million on security measures in 2014—a sum that it predicted would rise to roughly $907 million for 2016. That’s an awful lot of money to spend at a time when state and local budget cuts are limiting educational opportunities for students across the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, THAT's positive reinforcement for you!!

But seriously, if I even thought for a moment that an altercation between an officer and my child would result in her being dumped, dragged, and arrested for a minor infraction of school policies, I would get that kid out of that school so quickly, it would make the principal's head spin.

But what this kind of behaviour ultimately teaches kids is that the Authority Figures are always right, even when they are not, and have the power to physically overwhelm, and severely punish you.

As kids who are taught this way, when these children get to become young adults, the State becomes the teacher/officer, and still has the brutal power to silence, and crush you, even to death, even when what you are saying is legitimate.

Look at what the US government is doing to Chelsea Manning, to get a good concept of where this ultimately winds up.

Telling truth to power becomes dangerous, so most people just suck up the lies that ultimately will destroy their lives, if they are not careful.

New attack on free speech: Pro-Israel groups wage war on campus freedom

College campuses traditionally have been the sites of social and political protest — the combination of youth, intellectual energy, free speech, and academic freedom is a powerful catalyst for vibrant and often heated debate. Given the strain this can sometimes place on the equilibrium of universities, it is not surprising to see limits placed on speech and action. What is unusual is for pressure to come from groups outside the university. That’s precisely what is happening today when it comes to the topic of Israel and Palestine, and the overreach of some pro-Israel organizations into campus free speech is such that even those who oppose an academic boycott of Israel have condemned their actions.

Teacher kicks student out of class for being Trump supporter

This Student gets kicked out of class for supporting Donald Trump?
I found that video on a special platform (young news channel) and I know you guys do not watch Youtube. So I saw that video has only 500 clicks and more people have to see this shit. It deserves more viewer.

Trump supporters are treated so bad by so called democrats! Is that democratic? NO. I fucking do not believe it.

North Carolina high school teacher made her students compare speeches by Hitler and Trump, say outraged parents

One parent told Fox News that the frequent episodes of Trump-bashing made their child uncomfortable in class. That is what motivated one of the students to record the teacher.

'My son was very uncomfortable,' one father said. 'He felt like she was attacking anybody who liked Trump or anybody's parents who liked Trump. She didn't say anything bad about any other politician.'

The teacher is also being accused of making students watch video clips of speeches by the Fuhrer – and then giving assignments requiring them to make comparisons to Trump's speeches.

'She compared the Hitler speeches to things that Trump says – stuff like nationalism to making the country stronger,' one parent said. 'They played a video showing Hitler's speeches – translated into English.'

Once the teacher discovered that students had secretly recorded her, she confiscated their cell phones.

Unschooling: Radical Education That Produces Free Human Beings Instead of Slaves

Let’s talk about the “education system,” that cornerstone of civilized societies everywhere.

We all know that the future lies in the hands of our children. That’s why parents want to do everything they can to give their kids a good start in life. We make careful choices about the food they eat, the friends they hang out with, and the education they receive.

Unfortunately, over the past decades, the education system in America has been churning out kids who are less interested in the world around them, more dependent on others for safety, and programmed to accept whatever information they’re provided without question.

Sep 23 11:14

Modern education is Pavlovian conditioning

Assessing the problems in American public education and academia elicits standard responses that are generally trite and multitude. “Lack of funding,”, or “adequately trained teachers,” often round out the usual replies, yet system-generated solutions to the perceived problems are always external in nature (especially given the problems are themselves system-generated).

“Tiny Act of Bigotry”: Saying a Student’s Name Wrong Is Now a Microaggression That Can “Hinder Academic Progress”

Apparently that doesn't mean she's calling you a bigot if you mispronounce a kid's name... it just means you have "room to grow" from committing "tiny acts of bigotry" that "truly negates" a kid's "identity" (like public school doesn't attempt to do that already).

Black British students ‘psychologically damaged by white curriculum’

Universities across Britain might be causing psychological distress to black students because they’re forced to learn about mostly white Europeans, the National Union of Students (NUS) leader has said.

NUS president Malia Bouattia, herself a black woman of Algerian heritage, believes that as most higher education is based on “Eurocentric” subjects, non-white undergraduates end up lagging behind.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hate to be the one to point this out, but those universities ARE in Europe, and I note that nobody mentions the educational focus of universities in Africa, which I presume do teach about African issues.

Over 100 Education Groups Want To Kick Cops Out Of Schools

Law enforcement officers were regularly stationed in 10 percent of schools in 1997. By 2014, school resource officers were stationed in about one-third of schools. Now, two decades since the number of school-based police officers started to explode, a coalition of over 100 education and social justice organizations are calling for a course correction.

The Dignity in Schools Campaign ? a coalition of organizations, parents and students from 27 states ? wants heavily policed campuses to be a thing of the past. It released a set of recommendations on Wednesday to promote alternatives to harsh school discipline and youth criminalization. DSC members plan to present the guidance to lawmakers during congressional briefings later in the day.

The new recommendations are the strongest that DSC member organizations ? groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund ? have ever made collectively on the issue of school policing

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Schools should never feel like minimum security prisons, ever!!

Modern Education is Pavlovian Conditioning

From its inception, the architects of the American public education system, and its corollary system of “higher education” in the college and university system, were established explicitly for the purpose of reorienting classical modes of pedagogy for “democratic,” “socialistic,” “utopian,” and “egalitarian” techniques of state conditioning that would confer “personhood” on the individual pupil through integration into the collective, allowing for a smoother transition into the Comtean civic religion of scientistic naturalism, paying obeisance to the gods of state, as life would be lived out in the “New Jerusalem” of the public-private cubicle.

UC Berkeley reinstates Palestine course, but tried to change content

UC Berkeley has reinstated a student-led class on the history of Palestine suspended on 13 September, following sustained outcry by students, members of faculty, lawyers and supporters of campus free speech and academic freedom.

More than 40 off-campus Israel-aligned groups – along with the campus’ Hillel chapter – had pressured the university and its outgoing chancellor, Nicholas Dirks, to censor the class.

The groups claimed it was a venue for “political indoctrination.”

There are indications that an Israeli government official and the heads of Israeli universities also acted to pressure the Berkeley administration.

Sep 18 19:03

Modern Education is Pavlovian Conditioning

Waking Times

The very presupposition of the modern debates over education are precisely concerned with how to fix a “broken system,” yet I propose the system is functioning perfectly as it was intended: The goal of public education and academia is not education, but socialization and Pavlovian social engineering.

Berkeley Bans A Palestine Class

Suspending a course in the middle of a semester is one of the most serious actions a university can take. On Sept. 13, Dean Carla Hesse of the University of California at Berkeley did exactly that to a student-taught DeCal class about Palestine.

Gender studies prof rips down 9/11 memorial posters

Members of the Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Saddleback College had their 9/11 memorial posters ripped down and shredded by the chair of the school’s History department.

According to The New Guard, the students were participating in the Young America’s Foundation “9/11: Never Forget” project, which involves planting 2,977 American flags to remember the lives lost 15 years ago on 9/11, when they were accosted by the professor, who proceeded to rip down their posters and direct them to confine their activities to one of the “free speech areas” on campus.

York University fires employee for opposing genocide

Dear Mamdouh Shoukri,

I am appalled at the news that technician Nikolaos Balaskas has been fired from York University for posting anti-Zionist material on his Facebook page.

Zionism is a genocidal ideology. By definition, it seeks to establish a “Jewish State” on Palestinian land. The Zionist project requires the murder or expulsion of most or all Palestinians from their homeland, along with the destruction of Palestinian culture, which is a natural outgrowth of the people’s relationship to their land. This is genocide, physical and cultural, by any definition, including those prevailing under international law. International Law Professor Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois, and (Jewish) history professor Lawrence Davidson of West Chester University, have, taken together, provided the arguments and documentation proving the “Zionism is genocide” equation beyond a reasonable doubt.

Why has your university has fired an employee for opposing genocide?

New video shows mob of Yale students encircling professor and angrily demanding an apology after he told them to 'just look away' if they were offended by racist Halloween costumes

New videos have surfaced of a Yale professor being protested and yelled at by students for sending an email telling them to ignore people dressed in offensive or racist Halloween costumes last year.

Berkeley Suspends Palestine Class Midway Through Semester

A University of California, Berkeley class, ‘Palestine: A Settler-Colonial Analysis’, was suspended after Chancellor Nicholas Dirks determined that the student teaching the course had not followed the appropriate procedures for its approval.

The one-credit student-taught class has become the center of a bitter debate. The class was meant to teach the history of Palestine “from the 1880s to the present, through the lens of settler colonialism,” its syllabus once read, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The syllabus has since been removed.

The number of nonwhite invaders posing as asylum seekers in Germany and receiving welfare has tripled from 2014, and last year €5.3 billion ($5.91 billion) in welfare handouts were paid out, new official figures have revealed.

According to a statement issued by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), the recipients of the handouts claimed to come from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, “other Asia,” Eritrea, Nigeria, Somalia, and the “rest of Africa.”

NPR Station Publishes Anti-Trump Comic for Teachers, Children to Use in Class

San Francisco Bay Area NPR affiliate KQED has published a comic book guide to Donald Trump’s immigration policy, aimed at students, which is titled “Fear of Foreigners” and casts Trump as part of the “History of Nativism in America.”
The comic book slide show, illustrated by Andy Warner, is part of KQED’s series “The Lowdown,” described by the station as “Connecting newsroom to classroom,” and is presented among “lesson plans and education guides” for teachers to use.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm sorry: KQED just crossed a line here, and should have its broadcasting license revoked.

Substituting clever demagoguery for history, and particularly demonstrating rampant political favoritism in an election year, is a big, tacky, hairy no-no.

The executives at KQED should have known better; but because they were obviously indulging in the process of "collective magical thinking", they didn't believe that this little bit of trickery would be found out.

Sorry, guys and gals: you're busted on this one!!

JEWISH STUDENTS REJECT THE LIES ABOUT BDS

Writing in the Forward, Seffi Kogen suggests that BDS pushes Jewish students out of social justice work on campuses across the country — because, when faced with the choice between supporting activism and supporting Israel, Jews have to choose Israel. But the problem facing Jewish student activists isn’t BDS or intersectionality: it’s the occupation, and the Jewish establishment’s support for an unjust status quo.

Mind Control Vs. Freedom

Has it occurred to you that virtually no college in America teaches a course in individual freedom? Make no mistake about it, the technocrats/social engineers have a plan. They intend to program brains to fit their values-agenda. Whatever opposes that agenda is called a “mental disorder,” which needs to be corrected and erased.

The Age of Cryptocurrency Book Review

The book is written by Paul Vigna and Michael J. Casey. I have to be upfront about this book, it’s not a nuts and bolts guide on how to actually use Bitcoin. What it does do is give a detailed history about the digital currency. It explains the reasons why and how the currency was created, and it also gives a number of compelling reasons for everyday people to learn about the currency and to get started using it...

Danish School Under Fire For White Flight

The goal of these multicultists was to enforce a 50/50 ratio of Danish/non-Europeans in each class as a means to force integration. Well it didn’t turn into peace, love, unicorns and rainbows as they expected. It created White flight among Danish students. They never considered the feelings and experiences of Danish teens who are forced to go to school with the children of hostile invaders.

TRIGGER WARNINGS, SAFE SPACES, BIAS REPORTING: THE NEW MICRO-TECHNIQUES OF SURVEILLANCE AND CONTROL

A singular orthodoxy has infiltrated the discursive and parameters of U.S. and other universities and colleges. This orthodoxy now constitutes the ethical vocabulary of academia. Adopted from feminism, anti-racism, and LGBTQ theory and practice, the language, doctrines, and mechanisms of this orthodoxy now dominate academia's policies, procedures and handbooks. The terminology has become the vernacular among the swelling ranks of administrators, especially the relatively new cohort of chief diversity officers, directors of diversity, associate provosts of diversity, assistant provosts of diversity, diversity consultants, and so on and so on. I refer not merely to the orthodoxy of "diversity," but in particular to "diversity" initiativesas they are currently administered, using a particular set of policies, procedures, and mechanisms: trigger warnings, safe spaces, bias reporting, and the like.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Universities used to be about looking at controversial ideas which may well not mirror one's own thoughts; not today in the US educational system.

When these kids get out in the real world, and they realize just how brutally competitive the corporate workplace is, how are they ever going to function?!?

There are no "safe spaces"; no "trigger reports" no "bias response teams" in the real world; you either function, brilliantly, or you die, professionally.

It is just that simple.

The strangest military gear on campus police’s back to school shopping list

Through the Department of Defense’s 1033 program, police departments are eligible to receive secondhand supplies once used by the U.S. military. Among the participating agencies are those hired by public educational institutions – state colleges, universities, and K-12 school districts.

In fact, 141 individual schools or school systems are listed by the Defense Logistics Agency’s July 2016 Inventory as having former military property in their possession. Some of these items are pretty standard, some are frightening to think about, and some are pretty difficult to make sense of. Below are a few of the latter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Knowing that this kind of military grade equipment was going to be on my child's school campus would be all the motivation I would need to pull that child out of school so quickly that it would make the Principal's head spin, and either home school them, or get them enrolled in a private school with a philosophy that sticking a gun in a kid's face, every time they misbehave, is real overkill.

ITT Tech’s Legacy: Angry Grads With Lots Of Debt

When ITT Technical Institute announced it was closing its doors on Tuesday, Zach Seigel, ITT class of 2008, was thrilled. Not for himself, he says, but for all the people who now won’t be saddled with the same debt and useless degree that he is: $40,000 of student loans he can’t discharge and an associate degree in applied science that he says didn’t lead to any paid work.

Seigel’s story is not unique; in fact, the many dissatisfied and debt-laden former ITT students just like him helped contribute to ITT’s demise. The school suddenly closed all 130 of its schools this week, just as the semester was beginning, leaving approximately 40,000 students and 8,000 employees out of class and out of work. In a statement that placed the blame squarely on the government, ITT said the Department of Education’s “complete disregard” for “due process” left it with no choice but to close.

Adjunct Sues University…Wins Easily

The American Civil Liberties Union on Wednesday filed a complaint against Adams State University administrators on behalf of Danny Ledonne, a former adjunct professor of mass communications and video production employee who was banned from campus after he repeatedly criticized the university on a personal website called WatchingAdams.org.

Banned from campus for criticizing the university. What horrible things did he say?

Ledonne wrote about pay differences between faculty members and administrators and questioned the university's hiring practices…Adams State issued Ledonne a no-trespass order this fall. The complaint, filed in a federal court in Colorado, alleges violations of Ledonne’s free speech and due process rights, as well as false and defamatory claims by the university that his behavior was threatening.

Federal College Tax Credits Cost $32 Billion/Year And Have Zero Effect On Applications Or Enrollment

This study examines the effect of information about tax credits for college using a sample of over 1 million students or prospective students in Texas. We sent emails and letters to students that described tax credits for college and tracked college outcomes. We find that for all three of our samples—already enrolled students, students who had previously applied to college but were not currently enrolled, and rising high school seniors—that information about tax credits for college did not affect reenrollment, application, and enrollment respectively.

Don't Be Surprised If Colin Kaepernick Prompts More Schoolchildren To Sit For The Pledge Of Allegiance

Colin Kaepernick is a role model whether you like it or not. Many view Kaepernick’s choice of protest as disrespecting the flag, our armed forces and America itself, but the vitriol toward the football player represents the fears that children may grasp the power of civil disobedience. Students who idolize athletes like Kaepernick may also mimic him at school and sit during the pledge of allegiance in protest.

Children in our broken US school system have many reasons to take a seat.

40,000 Students In Limbo, 8,000 Employees Fired As ITT Suddenly Shuts Down

The long-running tragic saga of ITT Education Services, which was established nearly 50 ago and operates the ITT Technical Institutes for-profit college chain, finally came to a end this morning with both a bang and a whimper, when it announced that it is shutting down effective immediately, leaving the fate of 40,000 students currently enrolled in limbo, and some 8,000 workers without a job.

The company said the closure is due to an investigation and sanctions by the U.S. Department of Education.

"It is with profound regret that we must report that ITT Educational Services, Inc. will discontinue academic operations at all of its ITT Technical Institutes permanently after approximately 50 years of continuous service," the company stated Tuesday. "Effective today, the company has eliminated the positions of the overwhelming majority of our more than 8,000 employees."

White cop who body-slammed black girl faces no charges

A white US police officer, whose outrageous actions against a 16-year-old African-American girl captured on cameras last year, will not face criminal charges, a prosecutor says.

South Carolina prosecutor Solicitor Dan Johnson decided on Friday not to criminally charge officer Ben Fields, who was seen on videos violently handcuffing the girl at Spring Valley High School in Columbia last October.

Fields, the school resource officer was seen slamming the girl and wrapping his forearm around her neck before dragging her from behind her desk and throwing her across the classroom to handcuff her. He called on the girl to surrender her mobile phone but she refused.

The incident made headlines and caused outrage across the nation last year.

In a 12-page court report, the prosecutor, however, said he found no probable cause to charge Fields. Johnson only expressed concerns over the “manner” in which Fields handled the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess this teen was bloody lucky that she didn't get shot; but this is what education in Amerika has become, when brutal police corporal punishment for the most minor of infractions is the "new normal".

Parents, if you possibly can, please get your kids out of public schools and home school them NOW!!!

Public schools in this country have become intellectually useless; brutal; and a form of prison for our kids.

No child deserves this, period, end of discussion.

7 Out Of 10 Millennials Are "Disengaged" From Meaningful Employment

Gallup recently released what it described as the "most robust and comprehensive study of the millennial generation" combining more that 30 separate studies involving more than 1 million respondents. In summary, the report found Millennials to be disengaged, aloof and completely incapable of prioritizing their own workload all while requiring constant pats on the back from management.

Lipstadt-Irving "Denial” movie: Caught in a lie before the movie even debuts

There is a crucial misrepresentation in the movie "Denial" about David Irving contra Deborah Lipstadt, where Irving is represented as saying: “... I’ve got a thousand dollars to give anyone who can show me a document that proves the Holocaust.”

In fact, David Irving never offered $1000 for any document that could “prove the Holocaust.”

In Atlanta on 11 November 1994, Deborah Lipstadt gave a presentation wherein, in addition to making derogatory statements about Mr. Irving without realizing that he was present, she claimed that she knew of “a blueprint of a gas chamber complete with the openings through which the S.S. tipped the pellets of cyanide.”

Mr. Irving stood up and issued to Professor Lipstadt the following challenge: “I have here a thousand dollars for you if you can produce to this audience, now or at any time in the future, this document about which you have just lied to them.”

Mandatory Vaccination in CA: Let’s School a Federal Judge

By Jon Rappoport

Judge Sabraw: here’s something you didn’t know about the DPT shot…

I’ll repeat myself a bit here, in case you missed my last article. Then I’ll get into something else, something dangerous that a Federal Judge knows nothing about…

Federal Judge Dana Sabraw is overseeing a lawsuit against mandatory vaccination in California.

So far, Sabraw has denied a petition to suspend mandatory vaccination for school children while the case moves forward.

He believes tradition and history are on the side of forced vaccinations. That’s because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Or he’s just making it up out of thin air...

Grotesquely Incompetent Judge Won’t Suspend Mandatory Vaccination

By Jon Rappoport

“Hey, let’s just make up stuff in court, it’s a party.”

I’ll keep this as simple as I can.

The infamous SB277, passed into CA law in 2015, made vaccines mandatory for school children in the state.

Last month, a lawsuit was filed, with the purpose of overturning the law. The lawyers asked Federal Judge Dana Sabraw to keep the law from going into effect while the case moves forward.

Sabraw just said no...

Colleges Are Lunatic Asylums

As the fall semester begins, parents, students, taxpayers and donors should be made aware of official college practices that should disgust us all.

Hampshire College will offer some of its students what the school euphemistically calls “identity-based housing.” That’s segregated housing for students who — because of their race, culture, gender or sexual orientation — have “historically experienced oppression.” I’d bet the rent money that Hampshire College will not offer Jewish, Irish, Polish, Chinese or Catholic students segregated housing. Because there is no group of people who have not faced oppression, Hampshire College is guilty of religious and ethnic discrimination in its housing segregation policy.

Gates Foundation chief admits Common Core mistakes

That may be news only to the Gates Foundation. As this new biting editorial in the Los Angeles Times — with the headline, “Gates Foundation failures show philanthropists shouldn’t be setting America’s public school agenda” — says:

It was a remarkable admission for a foundation that had often acted as though it did have all the answers. Today, the Gates Foundation is clearly rethinking its bust-the-walls-down strategy on education — as it should. And so should the politicians and policymakers, from the federal level to the local, who have given the educational wishes of Bill and Melinda Gates and other well-meaning philanthropists and foundations too much sway in recent years over how schools are run.

Having a lot of money doesn't make you smart. It just makes you rich ... and when you add a tendency to meddle in the lives of others with your money, disaster results.

If Kids Aren’t Gender Confused Yet, They Will Be When School Is Done With Them

An elementary school in Albuquerque, NM has a new policy to go along with the new school year. Just in case kids are gender confused, teachers are no longer allowed to address children as “boys and girls.”

After the Bathroom Hullabaloo of 2016, you would have thought that things might settle down and we could go about our business, peeing wherever we want to pee and that would be that.

But no.

No, now children as young as kindergarten age are being taught in classrooms in which teachers have been ordered to “eliminate gender.”

Of course, I don’t want to see anyone be cruel to children who are confused about their identity. But I also think this is a very alarming educational trend that is going to cause much more harm than good.

By the way, Albuquerque isn’t alone in teaching children about “gender fluidity.” Schools across the country are taking “you can be anything you want” to a whole new level.

Hundreds Of CA Children Sent Home On First Day Of School Due To New Vaccination Law

The new state law took effect July 1. Now, parents can no longer use personal or religious beliefs as a reason not to have their kids immunized.

This school year, kindergartners and seventh graders must show proof of immunizations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a two-word solution for parents who have done the due dilligence, and understand what the health problems are with vaccinations: home schooling.

And please don't believe that codswallop that all vaccines are benign. Take a good, hard look at the following links:

Vaccine Maker Admits On FDA Website That DTaP Vaccine Causes Autism

If Vaccines don’t cause Autism why is it a side effect listed on the package insert with the FDA!

213 Women Who Took Gardasil Suffered Permanent Disability

Vaccine Injuries and Deaths Continue to Increase in Federal Vaccine Court

The Vaccine Court would not be necessary if vaccines were really all that safe.

Remember: the pharmaceutical industry is one of the most powerful lobbies in the country, and has "purchased" legislation, through strategic contributions to candidates, in order to create legislation which makes vaccinations mandatory, like that seen in California.

Outrage at North Carolina college as 'white, male, Christian able-bodied and straight' students are told 'to check their privilege' in poster campaign

A North Carolina university became embroiled in controversy on Friday after a student group posted a 'privilege board' on campus which calls on white, male, able-bodied, Christian, or cisgender people to 'check their privilege.'

Students at Appalachian State University notice the board when they enter Plemmons Student Union, a major campus hub that has allowed the incendiary board to remain in place since last semester.

After he was shot, 9-year-old Kansas City boy snuggled up to his big brother and died, dad says

The majority of Black Americans murdered every year are killed by other blacks. But the enablers are in DC!

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City police believe that at some point the people responsible for the murders of two boys early Saturday morning at 58th and College were inside the home.

"I do not get it. I swear. We have to protect the future. He's the future," said Jayson Ugwuh, Jayden Ugwuh's dad.

Montell and JaydenUgwuh was only 9-years-old and his cousin Montell Ross, 8-years-old. They were killed early Saturday morning when a gunman sprayed bullets into the family home where Jayden and Montell were sleeping. Altogether, there were six children sleeping inside the home at the time.

James Howard Kunstler: Racketeering Is Ruining Us

Racketeering is just pervasive in all of our activities. Not just in politics but in things even like medicine and education. Obviously the college loan scheme is an example of racketeering. Anybody who has to go to an emergency room with a child whose broken their finger or something, is going to end up with a bill for $20,000. You know why? Because of medical racketeering. And so, these are really efforts to money-grub by any means necessary, often in ways that are unethical and probably illegal. Let’s use that word racketeering to describe our national situation.

And let’s remember by the way, the activities of the central banks is just another form of racketeering. Using debt issuance and attempting to control interest rates in order to conceal our inability to generate the kind of real wealth that we need to continue as a techno-industrial society.

OVERWHELMED BY DEBT, NEARLY 1 IN 5 YOUNG ADULTS LIVE WITH THEIR PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS

In America today, more than 60 million people live in multi-generational households. That number is so large that it may seem difficult to believe, but the truth is that vast numbers of young adults have had to move back in with their parents and grandparents in recent years due to the deteriorating economy. Millions of our young people cannot find decent jobs once they leave school, and millions of them are absolutely overwhelmed by debt. Of course some of them are just lazy, but whatever the reason it is undeniable that multi-generational households are on the rise. According to the Pew Research Center, 12 percent of the U.S. population was living in multi-generational households back in 1980. Today, that number is up to 19 percent. That means nearly one out of every five U.S. adults now live with their parents or their grandparents.

One of the big culprits, of course, is student loan debt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Young people must, right now, do their own due dilligence about what jobs will most likely exist in what fields by the time they have graduated; do not believe one thing a college counselor might tell you, because they are there to assure that classroom seats are filled, and the appropriate tuitions paid, either through private means, or student loans, which can haunt you.

If you do a web search on google.com, here is a question you may want to ask:

What are the best paying jobs which do not require a college degree?

You may be surprised at what is possible here, and will not put you under a mountain of debt. And you need to start looking in your sophomore year of high school.

SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE: ‘STOP TRYING TO FIX THE POLICE, FIX THE GHETTO’

“People have to find a more socially acceptable way to deal with their frustration, their anger and resentment,” Sheriff Clarke said, adding the “war on police” mentality was a “political construct” that had been implemented by the left for a political end.

“Same thing, same model, same subversive groups involved with different names now, different generation of course – as all those folks and the students for a Democratic society got old,” Clarke said.

Here are a few excerpts from Sheriff Clarke’s insightful press conference:

“Police use of force serves as an igniter — there’s no doubt — but to an already volatile mix of urban pathologies, failed urban policy that exacerbates inescapable poverty, failing public schools, inadequate parenting. Father-absent homes — we all know when fathers are not around to shape the behavior of young boys, they often times grow up to be unmanageable misfits that police have to deal with in an aggressive fashion.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In listening and watching the people who were rioting, I had to shake my head, and ask, "Where were the parents of these people while they were growing up?!?

Did they not understand that without the ability to speak and write a standard English, that their kids were doomed to never find decent, well paying jobs?!?

And what about the abject failure of their school system?!? Every school administrator and teacher in that district of Milwaukee should be immediately canned, the teacher's union (if it exists) be scrapped in favor of a teachers who can really teach, using a performance-based curriculum which measures a teacher's worth to the district by the level of comprehension of material presented, but not "teaching to the test", which has been enshrined by Common Core.

With love and structure, kids can - and will - learn.

Remember the great film, "Stand and Deliver"?!?

This was based on a true story, where a math teacher in East LA was tired of being told that his kids "couldn't really do math", and had them compete at such a high level that the district accused him of "cheating" to get scores as high as those kids did.

When they were re-tested, with monitors in their room, they tested just as high - if not higher - than they did the first timed.

Milwaukee needs an ARMY of teachers like this, who get well compensated for what they do.

PARENTS WHO CAN'T PAY THE BILL FOR KIDS' INCARCERATION CAN STILL GO BANKRUPT, A US COURT RULES

When Maria Rivera got a bill from Orange County for her young son's year in juvenile detention, she sold her house to pay for it, but ended up short, and the county got a court order for another $10K to pay the remainder and various fees and penalties.

When Rivera declared bankruptcy, the county refused to let up, arguing that the law that prevents parents from escaping their child-support duties in bankruptcy applied to parents who'd been dinged for their kids' jail time. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the county, saying that this was bullshit, and letting Rivera get on with her life.

The court wrote that the case was "troubling" because it "compromise[s] the goals of juvenile correction and the best interests of the child, and, ironically, impair the ability of his mother to provide him with future support."

SCHOOL TYRANNY: Honors Students Forced to Repeat Grade for Opting Out of Government Testing

A parental rights group, Opt Out Florida, wrote on its website that the suit was "an indictment of test and punish ... systems everywhere", and that "a positive outcome from this case will have repercussions nationally – for the benefit of ALL children in public schools."

The lawsuit aims to have the policy declared unconstitutional. This is an excerpt from the lawsuit:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on these parents; I hope the outcome here is successful.

What the alleged "educational purpose" of schooling in this country has become is all about getting Federal funding by encouraging compliance and indoctrination, rather than teaching critical thinking, making morally mature choices, and truly intellectually grasping the material which is presented to them.

Our kids cannot begin to keep up with kids in Asia, or Scandinavia, in terms of math, language, and science; and I cannot help thinking that to some degree, this has been deliberate on the part of this government.

Thinking, intellectually capable citizens wouldn't put up with one tenth of the codswallop Americans swallow in terms of their government's phony narratives.

New Treatment for Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis

I have Crohn's and a host of the side effects. I am going to be trying a new treatment to balance my serotonon/dopamine levels.I have to thank Hillary. Doing research on her health problems lead me to this.
Crohn's disease and a whole host of other chronic disorders we suffer are due to neurotransmitter imbalance. They have discovered genetic markers for Crohn's which cause the imbalance. People with Scandanavian and Ashkenazi Jewish genes carry the defective genes. I gotta double whammy.

MAIN GENETIC CAUSE OF IBD
There is a known genetic defect of neurotransmitter transporters (OCTN1/OCTN2) in the gastrointestinal tract of IBD patients.1 OCTN1 and OCTN2 are responsible for the transport of dopamine and serotonin. Because these transporters are defective, serotonin levels are too high causing serotonin toxicity, tissue damage, and the generation of symptoms.2,3

The Decline of Civility

It is the height of dishonesty, as far as blacks are concerned, to blame our problems on slavery, how white people behave and racial discrimination. If those lies are not exposed, we will continue to look for external solutions when true solutions are internal. Those of us who are old enough to know better need to expose these lies.

One of the unavoidable consequences of youth is the tendency to think behavior we see today has always been. I’d like to dispute that vision, at least as it pertains to black people.

Children held at Australian camp suffer assaults, sexual abuse-leaked documents

More than 2,000 incidents, including sexual abuse, assault and attempted self-harm, were reported in about two years at an Australian detention center for asylum seekers in Nauru, more than half involving children, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Australia said it was seeking to confirm all reports had been dealt with by Nauru police. "It's important to note many of these incident reports reflect unconfirmed allegations," a spokeswoman for Australia's Department of Immigration said.

The more than 2,000 leaked incident reports published by the Guardian cover the period between August 2013 and October 2015.

Children account for less than 20 percent of the roughly 500 detainees held on Nauru. The were 59 reports of assaults on children in the period, and seven reports of sexual assaults. Some of the reports alleged abuse by guards against children, while there other reports of sexual advances by unknown men.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the Australian people, and the government in Canberra.

I have been to Sydney, and loved it; the people were wonderful, outspoken and honest, very smart and very compassionate.

As a born-US citizen, from California, I thoroughly understand the problems that an uncontrolled border can cause. Illness, crime, gangs, etc., tend to result from an open border policy; I get it.

But where the heck is compassion for these kids?!?

Canberra, I am gently calling you out on this, and asking you to find some other way of dealing with these children, who are being "punished" for the sins of their parents who were attempting to immigrate illegally to Australia.

Why can you not be working with international adoption agencies, which could potentially place these kids in homes where they will receive love, education, and structure?!? Wouldn't it ultimately be cheaper for the Australian government as well?!?

When kids get this, it makes a tremendous difference, and they can then give back to society.

The Australian government had a brilliant concept with the incredibly functional public transportation system in Sidney; surely, that intelligence, daring, and far-sightedness which created such a terrific transport system can find a different way of dealing with these children, so that they can have hope again in their lives.

Back to School Shots: How Your Child is Being Programmed

By Missy Fluegge

Many parents already know that it is common practice for health departments, schools, and insurance companies to offer prizes to children and their families for being vaccinated. These programs have been implemented across the country and are designed to boost vaccination rates, rather than protect children’s health.

Prizes are also offered to health care providers who increase their immunization rates and fully immunize babies and toddlers within their practices.

However, parents may be surprised to learn about, later in this article, the massive amounts of money some doctors receive as bonus payments for vaccinating young patients. This article is a must-read for all parents, whether or not you have a child who will be resuming traditional school in the fall...

SET TO STUN

Months later, on a hot July day in this small town in North Carolina, Scott was watching the news with his mother, Stephanie Grice. Three days earlier, Alton Sterling had been fatally shot by a police officer in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Two days earlier, police in Minnesota had shot and killed Philando Castile. The night before, five police officers had been gunned down in Dallas. Like the rest of the nation, Scott and Grice couldn’t turn away.

Grice, who works as a patient account representative at a nearby medical center, said she can’t help but wonder if her son’s harsh punishment was influenced by the color of his skin. Both students involved in the fight were black; the school police officer, named Pete Smith, was white.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, THIS is what passes for "education" in American public schools?!?

I swear, if Mike and I had had children, we would have found a state where home schooling was completely legal, and home schooled our kid.

There are a zillion ways to break up a fight, and deal with a kid's behaviour that is less than ideal, other than with a stun gun.

But tasering a child, when that practice can potentially kill the child?!?

That's just way out of line, and so completely morally bankrupt, on the part of those adults who are allegedly working in a school setting to help kids blossom intellectually, that I cannot even begin to articulate how hurtful and stupid this practice is.

CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS SUED OVER ALLEGED HANDCUFFING OF 6YO FOR ‘STEALING CANDY’

A mother is suing Chicago Public Schools (CPS) after her 6-year-old daughter was allegedly handcuffed by a security guard and left near the premises’ boiler room under the stairs for more than an hour.

The incident reportedly occurred at Fernwood Elementary School back in March after the child took some candy from the teacher’s desk without permission.

The security guard in question, who has since been dismissed from his job, and the CPS are named in the lawsuit which alleges use of excessive force, false imprisonment and causing emotional distress.

“She was under the stairs, handcuffed, in the school, by the boilers. You can't treat children like that," the girl’s mother, Marlena Wordlow, told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why, when you live in the urban inner city areas, that you can never allow your child to attend the local public school.

There are a zillion ways to make a 6 year old realize that what she had done was bad behaviour, other than handcuffing, under the stairs, near the boiler.

That her teacher and the security guard who did this apparently didn't realize that there were alternatives to this process does not augur well for public education in Chicago.

The police state apparatus will now condition children to prostrate themselves before their masters as they are extorted during traffic stops. Illinois drivers education now includes instructions on how to properly allow police to generate revenue.

The bill signed into law on Friday by Governor Bruce Rauner authorizes a new curriculum for driver’s education classes which includes interacting with police. It will be instituted for the 2017-18 school year and become mandatory training at both private and public schools.

The guidelines, created by the secretary of state’s office, will instruct pupils on how to respond if they are pulled over by the police. It will condition them to not be afraid of being robbed on the roadside...

Technology: to optimize learning and a thriving future that makes .01% empire history.
Love: Human freedom with truth and optimized technology opens unprecedented opportunity to explore our connectedness with all Life and each other. Living as loving beings also relegates dominating empire to history.
Some questions to consider:

What would Life look like if all the lies of omission and commission were corrected to truth? Where would we go and how would we live with truth?
If technology fulfills its promise to free humans with unprecedented time for creativity, how would Life be?

Why Seven Million Student Loan Defaulters Are In A Standoff With Uncle Sam

As the 2016 election cycle heats up, we suspect the debate over student loan forgiveness will become an ever bigger issue with the Hillary camp looking to woo young voters that aren't quite as "enthusiastic" about her Presidency as they were about Obama's. We also suspect that students, helpless "victims" of predatory lenders looking to give them $200,000 to pursue their dreams of becoming anthropologists while consuming copious amount of free beer at frat parties, will grow increasingly vocal in asking why the Nanny State would have given them so much money to pursue non-existent "careers".

To put the student loan issue into perspective, there is roughly $1.3 trillion of student loans outstanding to 43 mm Americans, an average balance of $30k per student. Roughly 16% of borrowers are currently in long-term default with outstanding balances totaling $125 billion, or an average balance of $18k per student.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sorry, but when you are going to school, you have to do your own due dilligence about what jobs will be out there by the time you graduate, and figure out your financial risks accordingly.

And that has to be a student's personal responsibility, period, end of discussion.

And the reality right now is, not all well-paying jobs necessitate a college degree, but more specialized training.

I have a double major in music and theatre, which both don't sound like the most practical of degrees; however, I became a published musician, and use my theatre background every day in the marketing I do; it was definitely a skill I was able to hone, and use successfully on the phones.

And for people with the "I'm not going to pay a penny back" attitude; the Federal government will come back at you with a vengeance, destroy your credit, and assign the debt for collection with the most thuggish and outrageous collection agencies they can find; they will make your life a living hell.

When you are looking at a college, you might want to look at a credible, not for profit school, which offers a combination of campus and on-line classes, like Southern New Hampshire University, which has an excellent reputation, and a lot of respect.

They also have very low-cost tuition, which is an absolute blessing.

"Know before you go" is absolutely mandatory, in terms of what degrees are going to be in high demand by the time you graduate, and what the terms and conditions are of your Federal student loans, to get you where you want to go.

The GMO Debate: One student’s experience of pro-GMO propaganda at Cornell University

I came back to Cornell a changed person, with a drastically different perspective. I was in for quite a shock, however: I sat in on a course entitled “The GMO Debate”. I was expecting members of an intellectual community coming together, with proponents and critics of GMO food each giving the best verified evidence they had to support their cause. Given all that I had learned about GMO agriculture, I was excited to participate for the “GMO skeptic” side.

The GMO Debate course, which ran in the fall of 2015, was a blatant display of unscientific propaganda in an academic setting. There were a total of 4 active professors in the course, and several guest speakers. They took turns each session defending industrial agriculture and biotechnology with exactly zero critical examination of GMOs. In spite of the course’s name, there was a complete lack of actual “debate”. Here are some of the more memorable claims I heard that fall semester:

* GMO food is necessary to feed the world
* there is no instance of harm from agricultural GMOs
* glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, is safer than coffee and table salt

CHILD ARRESTED, THROWN IN JAIL FOR BURPING IN CLASS, COURT RULES THIS POLICE STATE MADNESS JUSTIFIED

Albuquerque, New Mexico is home to some of the world’s most dangerous cops. After a recent federal appeals court ruling this week, the world now knows why they are likely never held accountable. In typical police state fashion, the court upheld the arrest and charges of a 13-year-old child — for burping in class.

In what sounds like a piece from the Onion, the 10th circuit court of appeals ruled that the cop who arrested the child and the school staff were entitled to ‘immunity’ from any lawsuit filed against them on behalf of the child. The law the court cited in their ruling prohibits anyone from interfering with the educational process.

The original incident happened in May of 2011 at Albuquerque’s Cleveland Middle School. After repeatedly burping in class, instead of simply disciplining the child, the school called the cops. The 13-year-old boy, who was in 7th grade at the time, was then searched, arrested, handcuffed, and brought to jail — for burping.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, this is what "education" in New Mexico has become; violent, massive police over-reach, coupled with extremely poor judgement on the part of the teacher.

The kid was lucky he didn't get shot.

The Stolen Nation of Hawaii

Produced by Ken Nichols O'Keefe in early 2001, this is the virtually unknown story of Hawaii and the hidden Genocide being committed by the American government with the use of 'blood quantum' for the purpose of eliminating the Hawaiian national; and the reason America does this? Because according to their own laws, America never lawfully annexed Hawaii*, therefore according to law Hawaii never became a state, and if the Hawaiian land was never lawfully annexed, the only true claimant to the land, is the Hawaiian national.

Student debts wipe out most graduate pay premiums - report

Politicians should stop using a "carrot of higher graduate earnings" to justify raising student fees or freezing repayment thresholds, say campaigners.

Those who do "should be charged with gross mis-selling", says Angus Hanton, co-founder of the Intergenerational Foundation (IF) lobby group.

Having to pay back student debts will wipe out any graduate premium for most professions, claims the IF in a report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, the banks take all that extra money a college diploma earns you!

Court Rules That Kids Can Be Arrested For Burping In School

In an astounding decision, a federal appeals court has ruled that it was acceptable for an officer to arrest a 13-year-old seventh-grader for burping at a New Mexico middle school.

According to a lawsuit filed in the case, the unidentified teen was arrested on May 11, 2011 at Cleveland Middle School in Albuquerque after he “burped audibly” in his P.E. class and was taken to a juvenile detention facility in handcuffs.

School officials said the boy interrupted the class by fake burping repeatedly until the teacher sent him into the hall where he continued to interrupt by sticking his head back into the classroom and burping again.

Alaska to Allow Parents to Opt Kids Out of Common Core Testing

By Mike Maharrey

Yesterday, a bill became law allowing parents to opt their children out of standardized testing. The new law gives parents a powerful tool to push back against Common Core.

Rep. Wes Keller (R-Wasilla) introduced House Bill 156 (HB156) last year. The legislation broadly defines the rights of Alaska parents to direct the education of the children. An important provision in the law allows parents to opt their children out of standardized testing...

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Most ‘food’ is crap, campuses decrepit, students appropriately uninspired by bullshit (11 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Three related topics to academics that contribute to public education being bullshit:

So-called “food” served in most public schools is repulsive and not anything a rational and educated person would ever want to eat.
Most school campuses suffer from “deferred maintenance” that causes decrepit conditions that communicate profound problems to our children.
The entirety of academics, food, and facilities all produce uninspired children; appropriate to becoming work animals.

1: So-called “food”:

“Hungry children can’t learn. Malnourished children can’t think. We have to stop killing our kids with chemicals. We have to feed them real food… If we take one week off of war and diabetes costs, we can double the amount we spend to feed our children.” ~ Chef Ann Cooper on public education school lunches

Please take two minutes to consider the quality of food served our children in this trailer for Lunch Hour:

Erdogan Orders 1,000 Schools Closed as Purge Grows

As post-coup Turkey enters its second week, the focus of the ever-growing purge seems to be increasingly centered on private schools and charities, which the Erdogan government has accused of secretly being in league with Fethullah Gulen, a cleric who was once a close ally to Erdogan, and is now accused of being behind the coup.

The estimated 60,000 people fired in the wake of the failed coup have included a huge number of schoolteachers, as well as literally all of the university deans in the country. Reports have suggested Turkey’s intelligence agency had substantial “enemies” lists prepared long before the coup happened, and they have served as a pretext to get rid of them en masse.

Over the weekend, Erdogan ordered some 1,000 private schools closed, accusing them all of being linked to Gulen. Under the current state of emergency powers that he has, there is no real recourse to the closures, nor any need for the government to provide evidence against the schools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Purging one's education system of its teachers is a very drastic step for a government to take, particularly if there is absolutely no due process.

Heaven only knows what else Erdogan has in mind for those he "believes" were behind the aborted coup. However, we have the following, and very disturbing, reports from antiwar.com:

As Turkey continues to ratchet up their post-coup purge, with mass detentions and wholesale firings the order of the day, Amnesty International is warning that there are an alarming number of credible reports of torture and rape of detainees by the Turkish government. Amnesty cited interviews with lawyers, doctors, and people on-duty at the detention centers. In the 9 days since the failed coup, an estimated 10,000 have been detained, some taken to actual jails but a lot of them just held in makeshift unofficial detention centers. Lawyers reported that they saw detainees being brought in for interrogation by prosecutors with their shirts already covered in blood, reporting they’d been denied food and water for days. The detainees largely aren’t allowed access to legal counsel.

Also from antiwar.com:

It’s not a good time to be a critic of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Turkey. After years of consolidating power, and silencing public dissent, the failed coup earlier this month has allowed his government to set up a state of emergency which allows detention on any pretext, and which has many people simply disappearing into an overloaded and under-motivated court system.

If, in fact, these reports are true, under Erdogan's watch, Turkey, post-attempted coup, has devolved from a democracy to a thugocracy, which has become a danger to its own people, and is about to become a danger to the world at large.

Academy bosses are spending thousands of taxpayers' money on first class travel, expensive restaurants and luxury hotels

Academy bosses are spending thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money on top-end restaurants, hotels, first-class travel, private health care and executive cars, an investigation has found.

Channel 4’s Dispatches conducted a mass audit of receipts from schools across the country and found huge amounts are being spent on luxury services.

The data, obtained under the Freedom of information Act, revealed the largest 40 Academy Trusts have spent more than £1million of public money on executive expenses since 2012.

Appalachian State University Summer Symposium on Remembering the Holocaust

Perhaps it was when 90-year-old Joseph Hirt, yet another “THE Holocaust(TM) Survivor” making a living from going into school after school to traumatize children with . . . ah-hum “exaggerations” (i.e. blatant LIES) . . . was recently exposed as being a fraud . . .

. . . Or perhaps it was when 87 year old Ursula Haverbeck was recently sentenced to 10 months in prison for the “high crime” of questioning the official narrative of “THE Holocaust(TM)” in Germany . . one of the many countries where it is actually against the law to question this period of history (Including Israel) . . .

Kids will be “free” to “punch the air, pull excited faces and wriggle about on the spot” — that is, of course, until punching the air is banned for promoting violence, pulling excited faces gets banned for offending someone who gets offended when faces are pulled, and wriggling is officially classified as a “microaggression”.

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Science captured by the US rogue state; demoted to bullshitting about research, and silenced in real solutions for a brighter future (10 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” ~ Dr. Richard Horton, Editor of The Lancet (world’s top medical journal for published research)

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” ~ Dr. Marcia Angell, Editor in Chief, New England Journal of Medicine

School bans clapping and allows students ‘silent cheers’ or air punching but only when teachers agree

CLAPPING has been banned at a Sydney primary school which has introduced “silent cheering”, “pulling excited faces” and “punching the air” to respect students who are “sensitive to noise”. The school now only allows its pupils “to conduct a silent cheer” when prompted by teachers and says the practice “reduces fidgeting”. Elanora Heights Public School, which is on Sydney’s northern beaches, announced its new “silent cheer” policy in its latest school newsletter. The latest example of a political correctness outbreak in Australian schools, which have banned hugging, singing Christmas carols, celebrating Australia Day and singing the word “black” in the nursery rhyme “baa baa black sheep”. The ban on clapping at Elanora Heights Primary School emerged on the same day that an exclusive girls school banned teachers from calling “ladies” or “women” in favour of “gender-neutral” terms...

US PUBLIC EDUCATION: BULLSHIT TO TRAIN STUPEFIED WORK ANIMALS. PHYSICAL EDUCATION FAILS TO DECLARE US NATIONAL EMERGENCY OF UNFIT, UNHAPPY HUMANS IN BODY AND MIND

This 11-part series addresses an overarching fact about public education: its design of intentional curricular lies of omission and commission to keep our children and the general public powerless, relatively stupid, and controlled work animals.

Importantly, I do not blame education professionals working in good-faith effort to produce high-quality learning from our children; public education exists in a matrix of control for ongoing empires that I’ll explain in detail within the series’ sections. That said, anyone truly educated in one’s field gradually discovers that public education is a ridiculous substitute for what’s most important to teach and learn. This is Emperor’s New Clothes obvious when pointed to, with this paper’s content including factual assertions that no counterarguments exist outside of shallow and misleading bullshit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common Core does a brilliant job of making kids think they are being educated, when they are really being indoctrinated to believe particular narratives which are useful to them being completely controlled by a government that cares absolutely not about their futures.

As long as this festers in our classrooms, Americans will never again be competitive against those countries with the best educational outcomes.

As reported at fairreporters.net last year, in their assessment of the best educational systems in the world, here are countries rated from best to worst educational systems, in terms of math and science:

1. Singapore 21. Czech Rep 41. Turkey 61. Jordan
2. Hong Kong 22. Denmark 42. Serbia 62. Argentina
3. South Korea 23. France 43. Bulgaria 63. Albania
4. Japan 24. Latvia 44. Romania 64. Tunisia
5. Taiwan 25. Norway 45. UAE 65. Macedonia
6. Finland 26. Luxembourg 46. Cyprus 66. Saudi Arabia
7. Estonia 27. Spain 47. Thailand 67. Colombia
8. Switzerland 28. Italy 48. Chile 68. Qatar
9. Netherlands 29. USA 49. Kazakhstan 69. Indonesia
10. Canada 30. Portugal 50. Armenia 70. Botswana
11. Poland 31. Lithuania 51. Iran 71. Peru
12. Vietnam 32. Hungary 52. Malaysia 72. Oman
13. Germany 33. Iceland 53. Costa Rica 73. Morocco
14. Australia 34. Russia 54. Mexico 74. Honduras

VIDEO: CHILD BODY SLAMMED, CHOKED BY COP AFTER VOICING CONCERN OVER ANOTHER CHILD’S VIOLENT ARREST

A video uploaded to Facebook this week shows multiple Hyattsville police officers involved in a violent arrest of what appears to be middle school children.

While it is unclear what started the altercation, the video does not lie.

As the video begins, an officer appears to be arresting a young white school child. The child seems compliant. However, the officer is seen dangerously twisting his arm.

When the adolescent bystanders see this unnecessary violence, they begin to voice their concern.

One young person becomes particularly concerned with the way the officer is treating the other child, so he quickly becomes the most outspoken. This outspokenness apparently enrages the responding officers.

As the officer, who appears to be a sergeant, walks up to the scene, he shoves the Hispanic student who was standing up for the white student. This assault seems to be entirely unprovoked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To parents in Maryland: take your kids out of public school NOW. Home school them; they will be far richer, academically, for it.

And to those people who can move out of this city, do it now; take the financial base away from here, because if police are allowed to treat kids like this, it doesn't deserve your tax dollars.

Explain to Mayor Hollingsworth , politely, why you are doing this. And make sure you include a link to this video.

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Language Arts fails to communicate inspiration for humanity; losing the human spirit’s self-expression to slavish empire (7 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Let’s consider three points:

Absence of purpose for language: Where is the emphasis and practice with communication?
Language Arts is blind to the Orwellian world we live in while ironically “teaching” Orwell.
Teaching grammar as form for language without inspiration for communication to build a brighter future.

And let’s reflect upon three questions:

What does it mean that Language Arts professionals miss the point of language to connect with each other?
What kind of academic discipline is blind to living on an “animal farm” while claiming to “teach” the novels Animal Farm and 1984?
